Ingram Linhope and Greenshawhill was a township in the ancient parish of Ingram. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. In 1888 it absorbed the township of Hartside which had previously been grouped with Fawdon and Clinch. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Glendale Rural District. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished along with that of Fawdon and Clinch and the whole area took on the simplified name of Ingram.

See 19th century description of Ingram in A Vision of Britain through Time.
